Gorkem Yigit Senior Analyst, Research

"The video and identity platforms market is forecast to grow from USD4.7 billion in 2017 to USD5.4 billion in 2022, increasing at a CAGR of 2.9%."

Revenue growth in the video and identity platforms (VIP) market will be driven by the increasing number of 5G/LTE/IoT subscribers and the rising volume of video traffic, as well as shifts in the pay-TV market to IP-based and OTT video services. Automation through network function virtualisation (NFV) and cloud-native solutions and 5G deployments will drive growth for both VIP sub-segments (video management and delivery (VDM) and subscriber data management (SDM)).
